What’s better than an old favorite restaurant with entire brand new look? Well, nothing that I can think of at the moment. Convivium has been one of my favorite Italian eateries since I can remember. Their homemade Italian cooking is simple, authentic and has left a mark on me, in a good way. Their new location, just a few minutes away from the original, was even more appealing than the old one. High ceiling, more spacey, pretty and fresh- like a virgin. I consider myself an observant, so I notice the small little things like their cute knick knacks, condiment bottles, the writings on the cake displays. All cute and lovingly prepared. The menu has also been upgraded with more selections and I was so excited to see more available dessert and pastries.
Roasted Carrot Kale (IDR 75.000): Kale salad with Maple roasted carrot, Goat cheese, Pomegranate and Red Wine Vinaigrette. Crunchy Kale, delicious sugary carrots, there’s tiny the bitterness that I get from the dressing but it worked well with the salty cheese.
Funghi Fritti (IDR 55.000): Breaded mushrooms with cheese filling. Love the crunchy coat, nice tasty cream cheese filling too.
Roasted Chicken (IDR 90.000): Chicken in Olive Oil, Rosemary, Garlic and Lemon, served with roast potatoes and vegetables. Good presentation, the chicken was kinda dry and tasteless though.
Pizza Funghi (IDR 80.000): Pizza with carrots, mushrooms, cheese toppings. The unconventional dough was a little thicker than usual and tasted more like homemade, bread-like, dough, but it’s good. The toppings were generous and tasty too.
Fettuccini Carbonara (IDR 75.000): Very rich and creamy pasta with the delicious fragrant of the bacon and poached egg on top.
Rigatoni Tonno (IDR 80.000): Baked rigatoni pasta with Tuna tomato and melted Mozzarella. Love the look, al dente tube pasta, bold cheesy flavor.
Mascarpone Berry Cake (IDR 45.000): Lovely looking cake, very simple vanilla taste with yummy cream cheese and berries on top.
Convivium has been a gem on my neighborhood eatery lists and will always be. My visit here was fun and fulfilling too.
